    Cool video.

    The XL650/750 were awesome, the evolution of the model series. The necks on those 86-91 Charvels are sweet. Iíve got most of the model series, including a model 88, but always looking to put a 650/750 in the collection. Mint ones donít show up often.

    Well, theyíre meant to be played! I look for minty ones to collect, but Iíve got several with beauty marks and battle scars. The pointy headstocks on the old Charvels just beg to be beat up.

    Ha thatís awesome! The model 88 I have looks like someoneís girlfriend dumped nail polish remover on the body and headstock. Finish was fucked. Itís currently stripped, but Iím leaving the headstock as is. The polyester coating on the body was a fucking nightmare to strip, heat was the only way and the fumes were unholy. It still needs a finish sand, but itís a gorgeous African Mahogany ( before it was banned). Itís getting a tobacco burst finish, new Floyd Rose to replace the JT6 and a bare knuckle Warpig pickup.

    I should work on that today...

    Sounds cool!

    I have an Ibanez somethingorother 770(??) explorer shaped 4 string bass that we tried to get through the finish with Aircraft Stripper and it didn't even dull the finish..... My buddy that draws tattoo flash painted it up with skulls and bullets and shit. Over the pick ups and bridge so it looks totally Halloween! Skull knobs and everything! I'll look for a pic over the weekend.
